Amazon has added music alarms to Alexa. For all Alexa devices that support alarms, which include all the Echo devices but does not include Fire TV devices, you can select a song or type of music to be played when the alarm goes off, instead of the alarm sound being played. The feature works with all of the supported music services available through Alexa, which include Amazon Music Unlimited, Prime Music, Spotify, Pandora, TuneIn, SiriusXM, and iHeartRadio.
To set a music alarm, simply say “Alexa, set an alarm with [music choice] at [time].” Another acceptable command is “Alexa, wake me up at [time] to [music choice].” If you want the alarm to automatically repeat, you can add “…everyday” or “…every [day of the week]” to the end of either command.
What you say as your music choice can pretty much be any type of music command you can give to Alexa. You can ask for a specific song, album, or artist. You can also use a playlist or specific station to be played. You can even request a song with certain lyrics if you don’t know the name of the song by saying “…the song that goes [lyric]…” where you would say your music request.
Amazon says this was among their most requested features for Alexa. Music alarms are arriving just in time because the Amazon Echo Spot will be released in about a week and it seems like the perfect bedside device, so it’s important for it to have a good set of alarm capabilities.
